The Health Education program is designed to improve the quality of students' lives and provide them with the framework for making healthy choices for life. Longwood Middle School utilizes the HealthSmart curriculum to accomplish this goal.

HealthSmart is a comprehensive K-12 health curriculum which is interactive between school and home. The learning activities are designed to help students develop health-related skills, make and celebrate healthy choices, and advocate for the healthy choices of their peers. The program fosters a positive self-image that students are encouraged to build upon. The students are taught how to deal with a variety of health issues and learn strategies to help them make the right decisions. Students will use these strategies for a life.

Each grade level of HealthSmart is divided into four units. Lessons and activities build sequentially in grade K-12 to provide reinforcement and continuity that will support children’s efforts to make healthy choices.

The units in grades 5-6 are: Personal and Family Health, Safety and Injury Prevention, Nutrition and Physical Activity, and Tobacco and Alcohol Prevention. Our monthly parent letter contains health themes to help enhance the curriculum.

Our goal at the Longwood Middle School is to raise health conscious, responsible children who can distinguish between smart, healthy choices and choices that will jeopardize their health and/or well-being.
